Howdy and welcome, Lilbit!

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

y.es you and another good friend with the handle kctop did indeed work wonders and now the entire forum can see some of my horses.
kctop the two mares are now back from the breeders.
Since Thee Desparado died recently his two daughters that I own are getting more attention from me.
Both are confirmed in foal to a double Ansata Ibn Halima grandson. The foals should be here next June. That makes 5 foals next year. foal watch anyone?

More chicken coop work today. Finishing touches (doors) on the bachelor section. Friend came and got two chickens from me on Friday so my chicken math is going the opposite direction! Well, just that once anyway. The weather is nice right now - anyone getting some saddle time in?

DB, sorry to hear, but am glad you have such a strong and positive attitude. You'll get through this and always have us for any extra support.

KC, hope Thea is doing better. That sounds really painful.

Healing vibes to both!!!

No foal yet. It's at least 14 months now. I think I'll call the vet out again...

Good day at the barn yesterday; the heat wasn't too bad with the breeze and scattered clouds. Hope y'all are all enjoying the weekend! :)

No scattered clouds around our place yesterday. This was my poor Moon after about 10-15 min of playing around with the barrels and cones. I didn't push her at all but she does get pretty worked up just from NOT letting her go. It was maybe 10am or so? I rode my English boy around 8pm last night and he faired much better. Basically you have to wait till dark to ride comfortably at the moment. Moon did get a well deserved cold shower. Man, I'm looking forward to some fall temps. I'm not into freezing but I don't mind throwing on a hoody on a mild fall morning.

So hubby, 'BLESS HIS HEART' was a bit aloof the other day. I can't criticize him for helping me out, but I still have to laugh at him. He grabbed a huge chunk of hay in the grapple on our skidsteer and went and put it in the goats' feeder in their pen. He did NOT seem to notice that the gate was open, the water was off and troughs upside down and the goats were locked in the OTHER pen a few feet over. I asked him what kind of imaginary critter he was feeding in there? LOL!

So we took the grapple off, put the pallet forks on and went in there and scooped up the feeder full of hay and went and took it to gate at the goat pen. Horses needed a round bale too, so we spiked a bale on our other skid steer and parked it behind the first one (have to go thru the goats to get to the horses).

Engines running, hay ready to go out, and the sky fell HARD.

Soak and wet - goats running around then horses running around, we put the hay where it needed to go. As soon as we parked our tonka toys (hubby's favorite word for those things) in their spots, the rain quit and sun came out like nothing happened. Go figure!
